Daytrotter Art Exhibit

Since it started 9 years ago, the Quad Cities-based music site Daytrotter has recorded more than 5,000 musicians and bands. And Davenport artist Johnnie Cluney has drawn a picture of each one.
Friday (3/6) a selection of his drawings goes on display at Rozz Tox in Rock Island.

Cluney says Daytrotter records several bands a day, so he has to come up with several illustrations each day - for a total of about 55-hundred so far.
And as much as he enjoys his work, Cluney says he's often too busy to spend time listening to his favorite bands when they're recording.

The exhibit of his drawings from Daytrotter will be exhibited at Rozz Tox in Rock Island through April lst (2108 3rd Ave.). 

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
